Club de Golf Alcanada

Alcanada Golf Course, Mallorca.

Designer: Robert Trent Jones Snr & Jnr.

Everyone who visits Alcanada is impressed by the stunning views, and the well kept fairways; lined with pine, olive & oak trees which slope gently down do the glittering Bay of Alcudia.

The course opened in October 2003, and since then has become one of the most popular on the island, winning many awards.

In 2007 Alcanada changed the tee-time intervals from 10 to 12 minutes. This small but important change resulted in a reduction in the number of divots, pitch-marks and other damage to the course, meaning that the condition is far better than many of the other golf courses in Mallorca. Furthermore it is almost unheard of to spend longer than 4 and half hours playing 18 holes here.

They used to have an issue with the type of grass they used for their greens, as every Spring the greens would turn brown.  Whilst they played OK people simply didn't like the look of putting on brown grass.  So during Summer 2010 all of the greens were replaced, which was a massive undertaking, however this paid off, as at the same time some of the greens were re-shaped / re-designed, and the course is now even better than when it opened!

Almost as spectacular as the design of the course is the view across the bay of Alcudia. Club de Golf Alcanada is the only course in Mallorca that is located right by the sea. The lighthouse on the island of Alcanada, just 150m into the sea, forms part of the clubs logo.

Why play there:

Stunning scenery, great layout, and you can be assured of a warm and professional welcome from the Course Director, Kristoff Both and his staff.

Any comments:

Now that Alcanada has invested in a new state of the art GPS system for their buggies, they will be allowed on selected parts of the course, depending on the weather, and do not have to be kept to the buggy paths all of the time.

 

For discounted green fee prices, we recommend Simply Mallorca Golf.

If you're intending to play a few rounds at Alcanada, then it's wise to choose a town or resort close by. We would particular recommend hotels in Puerto Pollensa, Pollensa, and Alcudia:-
